Did you read the comments on the main page?

Apparently, Kali, the Black Mother Goddess of Hindu mythology is now teaching math in New Richmond Wisconsin ;?)

Although the graphics are a bit more simple and there's no all star cast, I kind of like this version better: http://www.flatlandthefilm.com/

There's two of them? *grumble* Though the graphics in the one you linked to seem more creative, if simpler--I like the clockwork idea :)

Ah, the plot thickens. Which begs the question, which one was made in violation of copyright laws ;?P

The book is over 120 years old, so it's public domain. There was also a 1960s animated short version starring Dudley Moore as the Square, but it's hard to find on DVD.

Argh, there's ANOTHER one? That makes three, I've only got two of them! Curses!

Heh, looks like Reboot!

There's some great Austin talent in it - including Shannon McCormick, and one of my improv friends did the 3D animation!

Why didn't I know about this film? *grumble*

The guys who did this were on the second floor of the building Enspire was in, the building you visited me at that one time. At least three or four Enspire people moonlighted in the production.

It's a neat movie.

Sigh...always the last to know!

Wow, Michael York as a sphere! Maybe 3D is "Sanctuary" ;)

OMG, I had totally forgotten about the existence of that book. I remember my slightly insane 6th grade math teacher reading it out loud in class a few times. XD
